Why chilly becomes red colour

The red color of tomato and chilly is due to lycopene in the chloroplast. It is a bright red carotene and carotenoid pigment found in other red fruits and vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons and papayas. Foods that are not red may also contain lycopene, such as brown beans or parsley.

How is limestone formed


Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) in the form of the mineral calcite. It most commonly forms in clear, warm, shallow marine waters. It is usually an organic sedimentary rock that forms from the accumulation of shell, coral, algal and fecal debris.
Pure limestones are white or almost white. Because of impurities, such as clay, sand, organic remains, iron oxide and other materials, many limestones exhibit different colors, especially on weathered surfaces.


The Ganges is personified as the goddess Ganga. Ganga's mother is Mena and her father is Himavat, the personification of the Himalaya mountains.
Ganga devi came from the feet of Lord Narayana. This can be seen in Srimadh Bhagavatham and Vishnu purana. That's the reason she is glorified to that extent. Let me quote the statement from Srimadh Bhagavatam:
Ganga devi was brought to Earth by Bhagirata and hence she was called Bhagirathi. God Shiva held her in one lock of his hair to control her force and he was called as Gangadara. As devi's force was still strong to flood Earth, rishi Jahnu collected her in his ears and later left her down as Bhagiratha requested him. Hence, Ganga Devi is also called as Jahnavi.
